Looking good Les and to the others I only supplied Les with the basic white metal kit for the winch - Les is the one who worked his magic on it and converted it int a convincing piece of used machinery !!

It's been quite a while since I last posted progress on the sternwheeler work boat. Now building the Ruston grab dredger at the bow. It in styrene though the two big gears I had 3d printed, the smaller gear is from the scrap box. There are other gears beneath the works which are those cheap plastic ones from China (200 for around £3!) that always come in handy. Currently working on the pipe work for the boiler.

Les, Glad you dredged this project back into action. It's looking very believable.


Although progress has been rather sedate, the results are indeed satisfactory. -- Russ

Beautiful work all the way around!
